Here are a few reasons a property survey can help prevent problems:
- Possible blurred property lines can become bigger issues down the road. For example your neighbor moves and let's say you don't quite like your new neighbors but when you got to put up your fence you find out that what you thought was yours isn't...
- You could find that a neighbor’s fence, wall or even a building could be on the property.
- A corner of your property could be missing. This would be an issue if you ever plan on putting up a fence. You will need to know exactly where your property lines are located. This could become an issue if you have put up your fence or shed on your neighbor's property and end up with the financial responsibility of having to remove and rebuild the fence on your side of the property line.
- Property line or corner disputes. A survey can reveal if there’s any property line or property corner disputes with the property.
- A land survey will help protect your investment. A survey can reveal the exact property dimensions, size and location of the home on the property, as well as any other improvements on the land, such as a driveway that may be crossing a property line.
- Sometimes you may want to subdivide your property to give to a family member or sell. A property survey will let you know what regulations may affect your future plans. Many municipalities restrictions on dividing property; a local partner like Atzl, Nasher & Zigler, PC will know these regulations and guide you through the process. In our case ANZ can even represent you in planning meetings to help you save time and money.
